Interview Advice from your Dairy Ashford Apartments
When was the last time you were nervous for a job interview? For a lot of residents living in our apartments on Dairy Ashford, it’s probably been awhile. Most people deal with a lot of interviews when they first graduate from college, but they don’t happen as often once you settle into your career. That’s why it’s so important to keep your interview skills sharp in the event that you need to get back in the job hunt. With that in mind, we’ve decided to dedicate this week’s blog post to the art of the interview.
In the blog post below, we’ll be sharing a few tips that should help you ace your next big interview. Whether you’re applying for jobs every day or you just want to be prepared in the event that you do have to find a new gig, the tips on this list should help you feel more comfortable in that interview seat.
Without further delay, let’s get right to the list of interview tips! Oh, and when you’re done reading through this week’s blog, please feel free to share the link to this page with your friends.

Pay attention to your nonverbals
Nonverbal communication is as important, if not more important, than the words that come out of your mouth. Your nonverbals tell the interviewer whether you’re confident, composed and generally excited about the opportunity. One of the best ways to work on your nonverbal communication is to record yourself on video and play it back. It’ll take a little extra prep time, but it’ll be worth it.
Talk less and listen more
Your number one goal in an interview is to make the interviewer feel good about their experience with you. One way to do that is to let them talk more than you. People like to talk about the work they do and the important role they play in the company, so be sure to ask plenty of questions that allow the interviewer to talk about themselves. If they walk away in a better mood than when the arrived to the interview, you’ve done a good job.
Come up with a closing line
Most interviews end after the candidate has run out of questions to ask the interviewer. When that time comes, you should take charge of the interview by closing with some kind of statement. Maybe it’s a reason that the company should hire you. Maybe it’s something that will make them remember you. Whatever you come up with, make sure you own the end of the interview.
